Gorgeous shooter Myriad targeting PS4: "it looks ridiculously cool"

Yesterday we previewed Myriad, a truly eyepopping indie game that elevates twinstick shooting into an artform in and of itself. Inspired by the works of Kandinsky, it allows us to reshape levels on the fly, creating dynamic unique masterpieces every time we play.

It's a fascinating concept and a ton of fun even at this early stage, and though the preview build was naturally running on PC, developer Erlend Grefsrud has designs on Sony's new-gen machine due to its unique streaming opportunities.

"I really want to do that," Grefsrud told Dealspwn.com at the Develop Conference Expo last week, when I asked him about whether he was looking to launch Myriad on PS4. "I think streaming is terribly interesting, and I really want to see if this can become a streaming game! Because when you get good at this, it looks ridiculously cool, especially since we have a procedural soundtrack."

To be clear, when it comes to "streaming," Grefsrud isn't referring to PlayStation Now or a similar service. Rather, the Share button can be used to let the world see your creations as you destroy enemies, create new backgrounds and manipulate the arena, allowing your friends and the wider gaming audience to appreciate how you turned a black canvas into a riotously colourful creation through gameplay.

Exciting stuff, and we'll keep you in the loop. Remember to read our hands-on preview!
